Mike is smart, kind and supportive. I needed help figuring out where my money was going when I wasn’t looking (which was most of the time), and he provided me with an easy, clear way to track it and parse it so that I was in charge of it, instead of it being in charge of me. He also brought logic and focus to the process of paying down debt. (Bonus, his freely available youtube videos are money-nerdy fun.)

Working with Mike has completely changed my relationship to money. Before I started working with him, I was really avoidant around anything to do with finances. I didn’t want to make a budget, look at my spending, or deal with my debt; making any changes felt impossible.

Mike was kind, patient, and understanding about all my emotional obstacles to dealing with money, and he helped me work through them. His warm and compassionate approach allowed me to get to a place where I could take practical steps to really change the way I dealt with money.

Through the work we did together, and the skills, practices, and habits he taught me, I now feel really on top of my money situation. Thinking about my finances energizes me instead of shutting me down.

Today, the choices I make around money have given me a much greater sense of freedom, and I actually find that I have more money to spend on the things that really matter to me.
